FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods for transferring files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the best solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our shared web hosting plans. This functionality is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software apps are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the same web content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to update your sites without efforts. If you would like to block the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP applications. In addition, we’ve compiled comprehensive help articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering includes a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same folder using their own personal login credentials, for instance, it will take several clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not run into any problem, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
